Parker Reed is Here!

Parker Reed Hoffman made his grand entrance on December 23, 2009 at 12:16 pm. It was another eventful delivery- just like his big brother! We feel so blessed that he has joined our family and we can't wait to watch him grow.

We love you Parker!

Santa on a Fire truck!

Each year the local volunteer fire department near our house visits the local neighborhoods and gives out bears to all of the children. It is so neat because they drive in on two fire trucks and Santa and Mrs. Clause are always riding at the front. They run the siren to alert everyone and then play Christmas music from the speakers. It is so much fun to see all of the neighborhood kids come running into their front yards to see Santa.

The past 2 years they came the first Sat. in Dec. and we have always just caught them before we left to go to Brad's parents for our annual Christmas gathering. This year we thought that we had missed it because we assumed that we left before they came, so we were so excited when we heard those sirens! Braden and I were still in our pajamas so we bundles up and headed outside to wait on them. Braden has been sleeping with his new bear the past 2 nights! So cute!
